A Mess of Greens: Southern Gender and Southern FoodUniversity of Georgia Press #ad - Combining the study of food culture with gender studies and using perspectives from historical, literary, and American studies, environmental, Elizabeth S. D. Used book in Good Condition. Engelhardt examines what southern women’s choices about food tell us about race, gender, class, and social power. Shaken by the legacies of reconstruction and the turmoil of the Jim Crow era, different races and classes came together in the kitchen, often as servants and mistresses but also as people with shared tastes and traditions.
Engelhardt reveals a broad middle of southerners that included poor whites, farm families, and middle- and working-class African Americans, for whom the stakes of what counted as southern food were very high. Five “moments” in the story of southern food―moonshine, biscuits versus cornbread, and cookbooks as means of communication―have been chosen to illuminate the connectedness of food, girls’ tomato clubs, gender, pellagra as depicted in mill literature, and place.
A Mess of Greens: Southern Gender and Southern Food #ad - Generally focused on elite whites or poor blacks, southern foodways are often portrayed as stable and unchanging―even as an untroubled source of nostalgia. A mess of greens offers a different perspective, environmental degradation, and women’s increased role in the work force, taking into account industrialization, all of which caused massive economic and social changes.
Incorporating community cookbooks, a mess of greens shows that choosing to serve cold biscuits instead of hot cornbread could affect a family’s reputation for being hygienic, diaries, letters, educated, moral, and other archival materials, and even godly.
